Despite being fined in the final round, Jon Rahm went straight to the podium of Memorial golf tournament. Rahm occupied the top of the board with a -12 score after 54 holes. On the finish line, he was the last starting group with Ryan Palmer -8 and in the T2 with Tony Finau.
After nine holes, Rahm collected two birdies, and Palmer still “broke even”. Along the same road in the penultimate round with Danny Willett – the champion of the major Masters in 2016, Finau dropped, with 6 strokes. And Willett then collapsed because of bogey constantly in the 4-6 hole segment.
Before the second half of the race, Rahm’s lead was up to eight strokes, and the race seemed to be over soon. But the Spanish golfers in turn made technical mistakes. Rahm had the first bogey of the day at hole 10 but was not worried because the points gap was still far.
